1488. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Planning:
I refer to the Western Australia Planning Commission’s amendments to the City of Nedlands’ Local Planning Scheme 3, and I ask:
(a) how will the Government ensure that the increased density zonings lead to increased liveability for both existing and new residents; and
(b) what measures will be taken to ensure that developers contribute towards enabling:
(i) walkable neighbourhoods;
(ii) active transport choices;
(iii) increased canopy cover; and
(iv) increased public open space?
Hon Stephen Dawson replied:
(a)–(b) The draft City of Nedlands Local Planning Scheme No.3 will soon be presented to the Western Australian Planning Commission for final consideration and subsequent recommendation to the Minister.
In making a decision on the scheme, due regard will be given to the liveability for both existing and new residents.
